The New York Public Library–Third Largest in the World

.

Here is the NYPL data: 53.1 million items; 18 million visitors a year; $250 million annual budget; 2,937 staff. Only the U.S. Library of Congress and the British Library are larger.

RT has only visited the NYPL once, briefly. He is quite sure that if he lived in Manhattan, the library’s pull would be extremely difficult to resist. As things stand, the library’s web site offers an impressive array of resources. Happy browsing!   RT
